I’m at the Airport Now

The times they are a-changin’.

This post seems to be older than 18 years—a long time on the internet. It might be outdated.

I’m at the airport and sun is just starting to come up now.

As usual, I didn’t get any sleep last night. I spent most of the time on the computer, just plowing through some of the crap in my Inboxen™, not that I got very far.

I spent 1.2 hours resting my eyes while I listened to Kashmir: The Symphonic Led Zeppelin. Around 3am I got back up and went to the UPS Store to drop of a small package that I needed to send out to Nikon. I also stopped by Burger King.

Burger King is open 24 hours, but only the drive through is open during the night. So I did a walk up. But no one was there. I rapped on the door, but no one answered. So I broke out my cell phone and sent, via SMS: “Burger King, 80401” to 46645.

If you punch 46645 into a keypad, you can spell GOOGL, which is the SMS address for the Google search engine. Google returned the phone number and address of the two BK’s located in 80401 and I call the one I was at and had them come to the window.

Took a shower and finished packing up my stuff and getting everything put away and ready to go. Then Jens Jensen drove me to the airport.

Definitely got here earlier than I planned, but better early then late.

A pilot just walked by saying, “The 7E7 is going to be nice.”

The sun is getting higher now.

9News (NBC), ABC7, CBS4, and FOX31/13 are all here. Me and Brittney almost got to go on live on Fox, but then not.

I’ve started the Thanksgiving 2005 Flicker set, so go check out those photos.

I should hopefully get on this flight.
